The Property

SOLD!  Occupying nearly 200 acres of bucolic countryside in historic Ligonier, Pennsylvania, this luxurious estate – affectionately known as Woodmere – is a special property where your family will create a lifetime of memories!

Cherished and maintained to perfection by the same family for more than thirty years, Woodmere offers beautiful country views and miles of walking trails for enjoying the great outdoors. The property’s handsome sandstone exterior and slate roof present an Old-World design influence, while interiors boast a relaxed, understated elegance.

Woodmere offers +9,300 sf of living space, plenty of room for large family gatherings or charity balls. Main entertaining areas include an elegant living room with dual fireplaces, an expansive dining room/reception hall, wood-paneled library, and a large recreation/media room. Professional-grade appliances fill the gourmet kitchen and butler’s pantry, which open into an intimate breakfast room. A bright, glassed-in conservatory and family room with fireplace offer additional entertaining space, as do the numerous sitting rooms.

The master suite at Woodmere is exceptionally appointed, with his-and-her bedrooms, a shared bath with separate shower and soaking tub, and custom closets as well as a private terrace overlooking the grounds. Four additional en-suite bedrooms (one with its own living room and kitchen) complete the living areas of the main residence.

Outdoors, the rolling hills of Westmoreland County are on display through the manicured trees and lush gardens of the estate. Set apart from the main house are several additional living structures, including a +/- 2,900-sf, guest house with 5 bedrooms, a 2-bedroom staff house, manager’s office, and three barns that collectively offer a total of +/- 13,000 sf.

Outdoor amenities abound: hunting, shooting, hiking and fishing at Woodmere can all be done on the property grounds! A heated dog kennel, shooting range, pheasant pen, and nine stocked fish ponds allow for hours of active enjoyment. For more relaxed appreciation of the estate’s natural beauty, there is a vegetable garden, 1800’s-style gazebo, unique “Stonehenge” formation (constructed from the same sandstone used to build the estate), and a boat dock with two slips (located on the property’s largest pond).
